Question 1: Do young people like historical stories in your country?
Unfortunately, the answer is not. It is not because our country doesn’t have a rich and glorious history. The main reason, in my opinion, is the way they are taught in this subject. Reading and listening about the stories only don’t really do them any good, and they will get bored easily. Ironically enough, due to the influence of the media like movies and comic books, Vietnamese youngsters know even more about other countries’ history than their own.
– glorious (tính từ) huy hoàng
– ironically (trạng từ) trớ trêu
Question 2: Do you think history matters in a country’s future development?
I really think so. Specifically, I always believe that learning from the past’s mistakes is one of the best ways to build a better future. For instance, with the help of history, we understand that education has always been the key to every possibility. A country with low cultural standard never stands a chance in competition. In order to establish a solid growth for the nation, in every aspect including economy, governments ought to provide citizens with every opportunity to learn and develop.
– cultural standard: dân trí
– solid growth: phát triển bền vững
Question 3: What is the effective way of learning history, by reading books or watching videos?
I think no sole approach would be more efficient than the incorporation and integration of multiple approaches. For instance, general information can be written in books, while significant contents should be shown with visual aids like videos to create greater impacts. In addition, field trips to museums may provide students with distinct experience and enhance the learning outcomes.
– sole (tính từ) đơn lẻ
– incorporation (danh từ) sự kết hợp
– integration (danh từ) sự tích hợp
– approach (danh từ) cách thức
